I'm tempted to make a new thread


I read on this site that saturated fat is evil and I only look for foods with no saturated fat,

maybe I can eat saturated fat and it wont  matter much as long as I am losing weight(caloric deficit), I am not sure, so I just want foods that people eat that have no saturated fat

I think Popcorn has saturated fat, even the air popped kind.


I wonder, does 2,4 DiNitrophenol affect free radicals?
I thought so, and thats why, without caloric restriction, you can likely get a longer lifespan using minimal DNP


Unfortunately, rogue, unbound oxygen molecules—free radicals—that invariably form during energy metabolism are toxic to body cells, essentially causing them to rust over time. Normally, the hemoglobin molecule in blood regulates oxygen levels throughout the body so that cells are not overexposed to it. Aging also weakens our natural defenses against free radicals, putting all our cells (including neurons) at risk.

Antioxidant molecules are abundant in nature; plants maintain elaborate systems of them, and they are found notably in colorful fruits and vegetables (compounds like vitamins A, C, and E, beta carotene, and capsaicin, the spice in chili peppers). A diet rich in antioxidants combats the oxidative stress we are constantly under.

In the brain, antioxidants slow neurodegeneration. "The chemicals that give fruits their color are exactly what we want to protect us from oxygen," says Wenk. In fact, by eating foods rich in antioxidants, we're taking advantage of the way another life-form has devised to defend itself against environmental harm. From their own sources of proteins and carbohydrates, plant cells synthesize the chemicals we recognize as antioxidants as shields against bacteria, viruses, and the oxidative stress resulting from exposure to ultraviolet light or the toxin ozone.

Because of the basic similarities of evolved life processes, the plant protectors can also help human cells from showing the wear and tear of existence. Blueberries, broccoli, grapes, prunes, strawberries, spinach, artichokes, apples—all contain large amounts of antioxidants, as do herbs and spices like rosemary, turmeric, thyme, and oregano. Bright, yellow-orange turmeric is a classic ingredient in the curries that are a staple of Indian cooking. Please note: The incidence of Alzheimer's disease in India is one-sixth that of the U.S.

josephs sugar free cookies

Ingredients: Unbleached Wheat Flour, Maltitol*, Natural Almond Slices, Canola Oil, Almond Flavor, Baking Soda, Baking Powder (aluminum Free)

I got these and ate them thinking they were ok
I dont think so because of the Maltitol, is that correct?


I find this interesting.


famous people who have MS...and Dr baylor has been warning about the hazards of ingesting aspartame for years.  In his book, "Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kills," Blaylock says that Aspartame and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) are closely related. The Multiple Sclerosis society, however, denies there is any connection between MS and Aspartame. It may be that the Society has chosen to hang on to industry funding rather than to warn its members of the toxic potential of Aspartame. Blaylock explains the biological mechanism by which Aspartame circumvents the blood-brain-barrier and gets at vital nervous tissues"

I ate Cheese Whiz by the pound when I was a kid:


I was joking about the cheese whiz, but I'm not sure why exactly?
why isnt food, food?
from the article you linked to:
For example, lecithin is the name for the natural emulsifier (phospholipid) in egg yolks; acetic acid is vinegar; sodium chloride is salt (from rocks); ascorbic acid is vitamin C; agar and carrageenan are natural gums from seaweed; pectin is the fiber in plants like apples; sodium bicarbonate is baking soda (which comes from an ore mine); sucrose is sugar from beets or corn; etc. They’re all also technically food additives, but whether they’re natural or artificial doesn’t make them more or less safe. Our bodies can’t tell the difference, either, as they don’t read labels. The identical chemical is the same to our bodies, regardless of where it came from.

As Im  using my Vitmix, I know to core apples, not that the vitamix can't handle  chopping up the cores, but Apple seeds contain a cyanide compound, so even organic/fresh apples are gonna kill me.

Im still not seeing any science that says a man who is 18% bodyfat who eats filtered water, a vegan diet lives a better quality(less disease) longer life, than someone who is also at 18% bodyfat, who eats a fast food diet

we all remember the dude with the twinkie diet, yes?
http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/11/08/twinkie.diet.professor/index.htmlFor 10 weeks, Mark Haub, a professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University, ate one of these sugary cakelets every three hours, instead of meals. To add variety in his steady stream of Hostess and Little Debbie snacks, Haub munched on Doritos chips, sugary cereals and Oreos, too.
he also lost 27lbs in 2 months
Haub's "bad" cholesterol, or LDL, dropped 20 percent and his "good" cholesterol, or HDL, increased by 20 percent. He reduced the level of triglycerides, which are a form of fat, by 39 percent

yes, he lost 27lbs in 2 months, I lost 67.5lbs in 10 weeks, eating eggwhites, lifting weights, doing cardio and taking a handful of drugs PRN.

so Im thinking the components of a diet is what is causing Low T/ED, etc.
while total calories determine whether you gain or lose fat,  which is what determines your cholesterol levels.

so what if you found a food that was made up of non-natural components, but overall,it was still low in fat,  no saturated and no transfats, wouldnt that be ok?


Sucralose or Splenda

It's a exitotoxin
Now the manufacturer of Splenda has admitted that Splenda is a seizure triggering drug.

Dr. Blaylock: There's really not a lot of research in those areas. They have some basic research, like with Splenda, showing thalamus suppression. If that holds up in other research, it's a major concern. If you're suppressing the thalamus gland in a child, that's the future of their immune function. You can increase everything from autoimmunity to producing immune-related diseases, to infections and cancers. The implications of thalamus gland suppression are enormous.

Daily Aspirin - More Benefit Than Risk?

Many people take a low dose of aspirin every day to lower their risk of a further heart attack or stroke, or if they have a high risk of either. While the anticipated benefit is a lower chance of vascular disease, taking daily aspirin is not without danger: for instance it raises the risk of internal bleeding. Hence the important need to discuss beforehand with the doctor, "In my case, doc, should I be taking daily aspirin?"

But this week, the publication of three studies in The Lancet, has added a new benefit to the equation: cancer prevention, and stirred up the pros and cons debate.

In those studies, Professor Peter Rothwell of Oxford University in the UK, a world expert on aspirin, and colleagues, confirm that for people in middle age, a daily dose of aspirin can cut the risk of developing several cancers, with effects starting after only two to three years rather than the ten or so previously thought.

Moreover, they propose that treatment with daily aspirin may also prevent an existing, localized cancer from spreading to other parts of the body, which Rothwell says is just as important to know about, since that's when cancer becomes deadly.

Excitotoxins are actually difficult to spot completely.  The biggees are autolyzed yeast extract,, aspartame and any kind of hydrolyzed or "textured" proteins (along with MSG itself).  But they can hide it in anything:  from artificial flavors to maltodextrin.  Basically, if you have processed foods with "powders" in them, you are at the mercy of the manufacturer and your own body mass. 

And sometimes you have to use some judgement:  if all the ingrediently look good, but the 10th is "artificial flavor", then you're probably okay.  A  few milligrams of free glutamine probably isn't going to do any harm.

My wife now just hands me the package when I go to the Costco or Trader Joe's and I give it the ol' eagle eye...
Since Peak wont go with me to the store and look at what I want to buy and since I can't find a solid list of ingredients to avoid, Im compiling what I'm learning to reference later.

autolyzed yeast extract
any kind of hydrolyzed /"textured" proteins (along with MSG itself).
 free glutamine
artificial flavor
Monosodium Glutamate
Hydrolyzed Vegetable (or Corn or Soy) Protein
Almost every Diet Beverage

rankings on the list
the higher any of these ingredients is on the list, the more there is in the product, if one of the above ingredients is near the bottom of the list, then the product isnt that bad,but dont eat it often

any more to add, I'll keep this list saved to add to.

does anyone have access to the POM studies?

I just saw on the news that the advertising by POM
has been told by the FDA that POM needs to change it's labeling beause it cannot claim it can do what Drugs can do

The label of your POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice product includes the Internet
address of your website, www.pomwonderful.com. Based on claims made in the labeling
for this product on your website, we have determined that your POM Wonderful 100%
Pomegranate Juice product is promoted for conditions that cause the product to be a drug under section 201 (g)(1)(B) of the Act [21 U.S.C. 321(g)(1)(B)]. The therapeutic claims
on your website establish that the product is a drug because it is intended for use in the
cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease. The marketing of this product with these claims violates the Act.

Foods are drugs, but you can't say that.  but my mom has high cholestrol and I just convinced her to take POM, based on the promise I'd get her the science to show why she should.
I just want that science,

__________________I just realized what I heard on the news was outdated and that POM sued because they have the science to back up their claims

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / random question
« on: March 11, 2012, 02:35:49 pm »

I think I need testostrone supplementation

Test. resultsy
normal is 240-950

Free test is 12(normal)
normal is 9-30

I have a big standardized test coming up in 2 weeks, I've been stressed
I'm  36% fat, usually, 15-18%
high cholesterol, 248
 high HDL 48
TSH 2.7
Triglyceride 189

this is the most out of shape I've ever been in

I'm dieting and getting back to the weights(yes, more than 15% caloric restriction on some days). and lots of cardio, some DNP and a high protein diet/low carb--mostly egg white, beets,  2lbs broccilli.day(raw) 3 apples, EFAs,  Arginine Plus, niacin(500mg-1gram), 5-10IU vit D(for a month to get my level to about 40)

by July 4th, I'll be down to 170ish

then I'll  get retested

Any comments about what I said above, as in, anything that looks horribly wrong?

Will masturbation cause plaques to form in my  arteries the cause erections?

I know if I dont masturbate, I'll increase my testosterone  level 145% at least once/week, or till I fap again.

I read this in
(A research on the relationship between ejaculation and serum testosterone level in men/
ISSN 1009 - 3095 Journal of Zhejiang Universi~, SCIENCE V .4, No .2, P .236 - 240, Mar. - Apr., 2003
which says:
-On the 7th day of abstinence, however, aclear peak of serum testosterone appeared, reaching 145.7 % of the baseline ( P < 0.01 )
--I might be reading the study wrong though

so maybe I just need to limit masturbation to just once/week...I havent been with a girl for 2 months now, and I'm unhappy with how I have let myself go, I need to get back to giving a shit about myself.
My errocktions arent that solid, most of the time, I do get morning wood, cept the last 2 weeks(the blood test was from December 2011)

Learn how to limit and reverse any damage to my heart/penis while I get back into shape and change my diet.
I think I should add:
1 drink Pomegranate Juice
2 drink Tart Cherry Juice.
3. take 2. CoQ10.
4, take Turmeric / Curcumin.
5. Green Tea / EGCG.  EGCG

Any other insights would be appreciated
